A request please. I know this is probably easy and already posted. I want to make some tiny Forget-me nots or similar from scratch. I know I can trace one but want to learn how to do it. Can anyone point me in the right direction.Thank you.

Good Morning,

Carolyn has a video on how to draw teardrops or hearts that can be made to look like petals.  It's here on the forum in tutorials.

Also very simple designs has a really nice video for a more complex flower, no voice but good onscreen instructions.

Once you've designed your petal use one of the create tiled clones using  ROTATE video's.  Carolyn has one of them too, as do I.  Both posted in tutorials/intermediate.  For only 5 petals I'd just use a simple object/transform/rotate instead of tiled  clones.

Good luck and hope to see the "forgetmenots" soon.

]I found Carolines Tute on my other drive. Couldn't fiond it here. It is the one where you move the centre point and rotate objects around it. This is my attempt. I did the flower and the scallop and joined and then duplicated around the centre point. Took a bit of fiddling with the position of the centre point to get it to work. I would welcome an easier way to do it. It is taken from a card I saw.
